yemen we have seen an increase unal qaeda as it exploits the country's security, economic and social challenges. the threat to yemen to the region and indeed to the u.s. homeland posed by what it is now called al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is demonstrate by suicide bombers trying to carry out operations in the capital and the attempt to assassinate the assistant minister of near yer in saudi arabia and the attempted bombing of the u.s. airliner on christmas day and the number of us have been increasingly concerned over the past 2-and-a-half years by the developments we have observed there and last april i approved a plan developed with our ambassador in yemen, u.s. in attention agencies and the state department to expand our assistance, to key security elements in yemen. with yemeni president's approval we executed the plan last summer and strength end the operations carried out against al qaeda in the arabian peninsula in mid december and have been executed periodically since then as well. and with your support, we are working toward expanded sustained levels of assistance, in y
jersey man suspected of being a member of al qaeda. the embassy of yemen here is saying quite a bit more. our homeland security correspondent jeanne meserve is putting the pieces together in the security watch. what do we know? >> he is sharif mobley, a somalian american from new jersey. a spokesman from yemen embassy in washington says that he was one of 11 al qaeda suspects detained in the capital earlier this month. last weekend the embassy says that mobley was transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment when he attempted to escape, killing one security agent and severely injuring another. he was apprehended after barricading himself in a hospital room. an fbi official says that mobley is under investigation on suspicion of being a member of al qaeda. a u.s. law enforcement official is unaware of any charges against him in this country, but says that u.s. authorities have been aware of mobley for some time. the u.s. has made a big effort to identify and locate somali americans who have gone to somalia to fight with the al qaeda affiliated group al shabab and the worry is th
. the interior ministry says two sells for cooperating with al qaeda in yemen, and with a network targeting security forces has also been dismantled. saudi citizens and other nationals were said to be planning attacks on key buildings and oil facilities. authorities said they seized weapons, cameras, computers, and documents. more detail from cairo. >> not an enormous amount of information yet from the interior ministry in riyadh, but they have confirmed 101 arrests. 47 of the saudis, and the rest from somalia, yemen, and bangladesh. they say that have been tailing the ringleaders for some time, and they say some of these men have been prepared for suicide missions. we have not been told yet what installations they were targeting or whether they were being read or belonging to western companies, but i guess that is it fair assumption given how many western companies operate in the kingdom. they seized a lot of weapons and ammunition, and they recovered computer equipment and a large amount of money. i think, given that there are yemenis among those arrested, it does confirm saudi suspicions
in nations like yemen and pakistan. yes, there is a very real threat, but the answer is not to continue to indefinitely occupy countries where we only breed more sympathy with those who would do us harm. the correct and more important way to leverage american military life to combat this menace is to have targeted and aggressive intelligence gathering and targeted special operations against the terrorists no matter where they are. some have expressed concerns that if we leave afghanistan al qaeda could reassert itself there. the answer to that is to go after al qaeda in a targeted way in afghanistan if the need arises again. it is not to engage in indefinite occupation of one or two particular countries. how many more countries would we need to occupy? if they're in yemen, do we occupy yemen? if they're in pakistan, do we occupy pakistan? if we weren't already in and occupying afghanistan would we choose to go in there today? i would submit that the answer is no. we need to continue our effort to battle terrorists wherever they err -- they are and focus on this stateless menace through
somalia and yemen. there are efforts to deny al qaeda a safe haven in that region. keep in mind christmas day underwear bomber said to have gotten training from al qaeda and yemen and new jersey power plant worker accused of being al qaeda, this guy, was recently arrested in yemen katherine airline has more. >> we had a driving and it was -- briefing given by a senior official who overseas african affairs and said the u.s. would not provide support for the transitional federal government or tfg. >> we have not and will not be providing direct support for any potential military offensives. further, we are not providing nor paying for military advisories. there's no desire to americanize the conflict in somalia. >> the state department did not address whether the u.s. would provide aid for covert operations in somalia and whether the u.s. considers air strikes n january of 2009 the u.s. launched air strikes that killed two al qaeda operatives significant to the leadership. >> is anyone saying what kind of new threats against the united states are coming out of the somalia. >> just this week
in new jersey and now he's behind bars in yemen. he's accused of killing a guard while trying to break out of a hospital in that country and now, listen to this, a spokesman for a group of nuclear power plants in new jersey said the 26-year-old previously worked at the plant. and joining me live now is an nbc news terrorism analyst. he's also president of a consulting firm. thank you for joining me. this is very interesting you had this jihad jane earlier this week, the story of this western woman with the appearance of being recruited and now this story. is this an indication al qaeda is trying to look for people from the united states who don't fit the stereotype of what an al qaeda member is? >> well, tamron, they definitely are. part of the m.o. was to find people with clean passports that didn't fit what would be the traditional profile of who is a member of al qaeda. but in each of these cases, jihad jane was on the fbi's radar screen for a long time. and this person mobley, the united states had known about him for some time, and because he was operating in very bad circles in y
captured terrorist suspects may have been taking orders from al qaeda in yemen. that's brand new. and it's the word today from saudi arabia. security forces there recently rounded up more than a hundred suspects and officials say they were plotting to attack saudi arabia's oil facilities. quite a major target considering saudi arabia is the world's top oil producer. and attack there could ripple through the global oil market and hit us all very hard. catherine herridge with the top story at the bottom of the hour from washington. how significant is it that the orders for this attack, we're led to believe came from yemen? >> well, it's highly significant, shep. yemen is the hub for al qaeda in the region. and it is seen as part of this growing threat against the united states. two years ago the saudis cracked down on al qaeda. this pushed many of the operatives south into yemen. that laid the foundation for this group al qaeda in yemen. the same group that claimed responsibility for the attempted bombing on christmas day here in the u.s., shep. >> shepard: what do we know about their cont

that was before security forces arrested the 26-year-old man in yemen before they say they caught him hanging out with al qaeda. before he complained of being sick, and long before they took him as a prisoner to the hospital. where we allegedly grabbed a gun and shot two security guards killing one of them before police captured him again. according to the nuclear regulatory commission, mobley worked at five nuclear facilities in pennsylvania, new jersey, and maryland. we're told he carried supplies and worked on regular maintenance. according to one report, he had red badge clearance. that's the highest level a laborer can get at a nuclear facility. it allows workers to enter protected areas around the nuclear reactor. our correspondent jamie colby is live in new york tonight. jamie, this obviously raises some concerns. >> big ones, shep. this is a case right now where there are more questions than answers. and the most disturbing are these: first, shep, when did law enforcement officials realize that mobley was affiliated with al qaeda and was it while he was working at any of those five u.s.-
. it is based in yemen just to the south of saudi arabia. and this al qaeda group is determined to attack yemen and kill the president of yemen, also to attack the saudi royal family and do what it can to destablize saudi arabia and attack the united states. al qaeda in the peninsula was the same group that tried to do the christmas day attack. it is the same group linked to the fort hood shooter, and this organization is now being targeted directly by saudi arabia. >> how are they able to make this big arrest? a hundred people are a lot of people. >> it didn't happen in one swoop. it happened over five months we're told by officials in saudi arabia. also we've spoken to u.s. officials in yemen and in saudi arabia who say the same thing. that over the last several months, saudi authorities have been targeting several different cells and not only did they take the people, they also seized weapons, computer files, documents of an assorted nature. they didn't say what kind of documents they were exactly and some weapons themselves. this was a major sweep that saudi arabia just announced today. >>
. 20 countries from... we've got... >> rose: saudi arabia to jordan to yemen to egypt. >> pakistan in the east. egypt in the west, pakistan in the east, kazakhstan in the north, yemen in the south. which is the most democratic? >> rose: your answer is... >> arguably, arguably. i mean, there's some other contenders. there's some that might say lebanon, but it's got somewhat unique democracy as you know, given the system. >> rose: right. >> pakistan certainly had elections. >> and givens. >> and then so, again, we'll see how elections go on the 7th of march. >> rose: okay, i hear that case. the lessons for iraq that are applicable to afghanistan today are what? >> well, there's a host of those. and, actually, why don't i try to paint the context, if you will, of what we've tried to do in afghanistan over the course of the last year. because, indeed, we took what we learned in iraq and then we looked at afghanistan and said, gosh, you know, we know that we needed these organizations to carry out a comprehensive civil military campaign plan in iraq. but we don't have all of them in afg

he breached security at the plants or that his work was connected to his activities in yemen. a former classmate was surprised he may have joined a terrorist group. >> i didn't can't it out of him. it wasn't like he had signs of being a violent kid or anything. >> reporter: he may have been influenced by extremist websites before moving to yemen. authorities are concerned about that country being the next staging ground for terrorists and americans who don't fit a profile carrying out terrorist acts after spending time on the internet. authorities charged a suburban philadelphia woman with trying to recruit jihaddist on-line. sources say that he does not appear to be connected to any current threat, investigators are eager to interview him. joel brown, cbs news, the white house. >>> the federal government is willing to pay $675 million to first responders from september 11th. it will settle a lawsuit over health concerns following the terror attacks. the plaintiffs still have to agree on the deal. >>> a four-car train derailed in metro's brentwood rail yard on wednesday. it's

of al qaeda suspects in the capital city of yemen. the yemeni embassy said while he was in custody the man complained that he felt sick. when taken to a hospital he reportedly grabbed a gun off a security guard at the hospital, shot and killed one guard and shot an wounded another. he was then recaptured and we learned about his arrest today. there are three things to know about this. fist, he's accused of having links to the branch of al qaeda in yemen, the group also linked to the christmas day failed underwear bomb attack. second thing, like the kid in the underwear bomb attack and like major nadal hasan, the ft. hood shooter, this guy is said to be in contact with a man named anwar al-alwaki, a radical american clerk who lives in yemen. he claims to be -- well, there have been there's three different suspects were said to be in contact with this man who seems to have quite a rolodex. the final thing that's important about the case and may be the most worrying thing -- did you see this? suspected militant worked at nuclear plants. so in addition to being a u.s. citizen with a pa

.s. citizen arrested in yemen, sharif mobley. he's accused of killing a guard after trying to break out of a hospital in yemen. pete, i understand we have new information about this suspect. what can you tell us? >> i think what's new here, there is a fair amount of scepticism i've heard of that he's actually connected to al qaeda. it is something the u.s. is trying to investigate for a couple of reasons. number one, yemen, the cell of al qaeda in yemen is very troubling to the u.s. because of reports they are actively trying to attack the u.s. it's from yemen, abdulmutallab, that's where they say he was inspired to carry out his attack. there's indication this man, sharif mobley, 26, who grew up in new jersey, had actually worked at five nuclear plant complexes in the u.s. in maryland, new jersey, and pennsylvania. there's an obvious question about whether he learned anything there that could be of use to terrorists. number one, from what one authority was able to learn, what he did at the nuclear plants, he was a laborer. they don't think he learned anything doing that sort of manuel
be on the low side. three of those men have made their way to yemen and occupy senior leadership positions in the al-qaeda organization in the arabian peninsula, most notably al-qaeda's second in command who is believed to have been behind the 2008 attack of the u.s. embassy, abraham is the islamic thought leader responsible for approving terrorist operations and muhammadal harvey became an a-cap field commander. now, after the christmas day bombing attack or terrorist attack here in the united states when we discovered the yemen connection and after many of us urged the obama administration to stop transferring any more of the 90 or so gitmo-based yemenis back to yemen, the administration announced it would temporarily suspend those transfers. to many people, that was a common sense move. the government of yemen has shown no real ability to mitigate the threat that returning gitmo grads pose and have not yet established a credible deradicallization program although there is movement toward that. indeed, two key bombers in the u.s.s. cole bombing were convicted by yemeni courts yet are fre
